      I am so fortunate to have been treated by Dr. Reid. He determined I had a bone infection where prior providers had missed this critical diagnosis.
      in Boulder, CO |
      He always kept me waiting 30-45 mins, without an apology and spent little time really listening to my concerns; instead, he told bizarre stories about himself and criticized my choices of other doctors I used. He never took the time to fully explore why I was not healing well and never showed any concern or compassion. I was never addressed by name and it was clear that I was only a # to him. My new MD, examined my hand , took an xray and found why I was not healing. Dr. Reid never had time.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
